The Weir Public Library board of trustees met August 13 with the following members present:  Ronda Coltrane, Karen Thompson, Trish Wyckoff, Roxy Blessant and Stef Arbuckle.

The library will be having a Bake Sale in the Park during the Weir Homecoming Drawings Sunday, September 20.             

A “Taste of Home” and a “Creative Cook”, both 3-ring cookbooks, are available to view at the library.  Donations are being taken for $1.00 a ticket or 6/$5.00.  Drawing will be during the Weir Homecoming Sunday in the park activities at the library’s bake sale.  Need not be present to win.

All proceeds from these activities will go towards paint for the interior of the library.

Buddy, the library dog, keeps a watchful eye on the library, especially the magazine rack as you enter the library.  So, he has a pretty good idea of what’s a tail wagger to read.

He is offering patrons the chance to get on his gravy train and become a “Library Buddy”.

A Library Buddy is a patron(s) willing to purchase a subscription to one of the magazines available at the library.

After becoming a “buddy” to the library with your permission, Buddy’s pet will put your name and the magazine you purchased on the “Buddy Board” above the magazine rack.

Buddy wants to remind everyone of the novelty cake pans that may be borrowed for a 2-week period and the Toy Lending Library sponsored by Parents As Teachers.
